    Daytrip by bus to Haapsalu

    by MalenaN Updated Apr 17, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Central Bus Station in Tallinn is situated about 2 km southeast of the city centre. I walked there, but there are several city buses and trams you can take ( I took tram 2 or 4 when I came back though). I arrived at the bus station at 8.30 and bought a ticket for the 8.45 bus to Haapsalu.

    The bus journey to Haapsalu took 1 h 45 minutes and it was 105 EEK. In Haapsalu most people left the bus at the bus stop before the end stop. I decided to go to the bus station to ask for the timetable back to Tallinn. Well, it turned out there was no bus station (as written on the map in my guide book), but only a last stop by the old train station (now a museum). Instead I asked for the timetable at the tourist office.

    When it was time to go back to Tallinn I walked to the same bus stop I had arrived to. When the bus arrived there was no problems to buy the ticket on board. Again the bus ride took 1 hour 45 minutes and was 105 EEK (April 2010).

    In April 2010 buses left Tallinn for Haapsalu in the morning at:
    8.45 (Mon - Sat)

    And they returned to Tallinn in the afternoon/evening at:
    16.20 (Fri, Sun)
    19.00 (Sun)

    By car, bus, plane

    by Inguuna Updated Feb 4, 2007

    From Latvia to Estonia you can go by car. Take road A1 to Ainazi and then through Parnu you can reach Tallinn. From Riga to Tallinn it takes approx. three to four hours and the roads in Estonia are very good and you can’t get lost because road signs are almost everywhere.

    There are bus connections between Latvia and Estonia. The one I know is Eurolines.

    There are no direct train connection which joins Latvia and Estonia.

    You can go to Tallinn also by plane. From Latvia there goes Air Baltic.

    The Road to Narva is a War Memorial

    by Kathrin_E Updated Sep 20, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The main road that leaves Tallinn to the East towards Narva ia a busy four-lane highway. Hardly anyone in the thousands of cars that pass here every day will think of the history of this road, and what - or better who - lies underneath concrete and gravel. The road is a memorial that recalls a dark chapter in history.

    The road was built by German prisoners of war after World War II. According to Stalin's plans it was supposed to continue to Leningrad (St Petersburg) but his death in 1953 stopped the project somewhere near Maardu.

    The prisoners of war had to work under the hardest conditions. Those who broke down from hunger and exhaust on the construction site were left where they fell and buried underneath gravel and concrete. So this road is also a gravesite.

    Remember them when you drive along this road. The concrete cover has been renewed but the subconstruction is still the same.

    Estonian Airline

    by HulaJoy Updated Jan 14, 2015

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We took a flight aboard Estonian Airline from St Petersburg Russia to Tallinn on 28 October 2013. It was a very small plane, and the inflght service was efficient and friendly. It was only a 50 minute flight.

    The check-in at the St Petersburg airport was extremely slow. Part of the problem is caused by the airport itself not allowing passengers to go through to their airline check in desks until a very short time before the flight is due to depart. To get through to the check-in desks you have to pass a person, and they ask you which place you are flying to? And only if they agree can you pass them and go through to the check-in desk.

    At check-in, they seemed to have a very inexperienced staff member doing the check-in. She failed to give the first couple any boarding passes at all. And when it came to us, she managed to accidentally stick one of our Immigration Departure forms onto the other's boarding pass, which made us think we had lost one of those Departure forms which we had been guarding with our life ever since arrival in Russia. The check-in was extremely inefficient.

    However the flight was fine. We would recommend this airline for its comfortableness. The plane was only small but inside it was very clean and the cabin staff were very friendly.

    There are many ferris to Helsiniki.
    So check which is best for you.

    Most ferry lines offer student fares but you have to ask for them.

    My journey with the Nordic Jet Line was o.K.

    On the link below Iyou will find your wessel.

    There is also a helicopter service see the air chapter
